How does NanoCLEAR   work?

 

NanoCLEAR   contains nanoparticles that are 3-11 nm in size.

 

Shown here under Scanning Electron Microscope are NanoCLEAR’s   nanoparticles coating the inside of a core, which reflects the nanoparticles’ ability to alter wettability.

 

NanoCLEAR   is also effective at removing organic build-up in producing wells, representing a long-lasting and less damaging treatment alternative to acid.

NanoCLEAR  has a significant impact on improving oil recovery as demonstrated in core flood testing.

®

®

  • Residual oil saturation post-NanoCLEAR treatment dropped by 21%.
     

  • Effective water permeability improved by 8% during flow back post NanoCLEAR  treatment.

  • NanoCLEAR   can effectively sweep pore spaces in the core mobilizing the oil, thereby resulting in higher oil recovery.

Wettability Alteration.jpg

Wettability alteration: contact angle & IFT

 

Contact angle testing has been completed on various cores. This image shows the contact angle between a water droplet and oil-covered Eagle Ford Shale rock. The presence of NanoCLEAR  reduces contact angle by 22%. In comparison testing, NanoCLEAR  demonstrated a reduction of 16% in contact angle vs. traditional nanofluid.


Interfacial Tension (IFT) between Texas crude oil and different aqueous phases was measured. NanoCLEAR  reduced IFT by 42%. In addition, NanoCLEAR  had a 20% reduction in IFT compared to traditional nanofluid demonstrating NanoCLEAR's  higher performance.

Emulsification Testing


Tests were conducted to evaluate the de-emulsification capability of NanoCLEAR. As shown here, NanoCLEAR  provides a fast separation of oil and water with a more distinct interface and higher clarity.
